If I don't stop listening to Paramore so much I'm going to burn out on them and lose my top pump up music for the Dec test lol.


Haha! My climbing gym has been playing a bunch of Paramore and Rise Against lately. It is good pump up music.


Every time I see another person mention rise against, I become happier than should be humanly possible :D

On a serious note: off work today, and if I post in here that I am completing a practice test I will actually do it. Time to see if/how much the RC drills helped. Hope everybody else's studying is going well! Will check back in later after PT.

Yes! For some reason I wrote all my 8th grade English papers to "Want You Bad." It's still in my iTunes.


The music video for that is a real blast from the 90s past. Frosted tips and Hawaiian shirts.


Haha! Classic. Watching it will be my reward for PTing.

But then who will go to Barry?! :wink:


Looked up Barry's ABA 509 and LST page and almost fell out of my chair at work.

My (immigrant) parents are totally fine with me going to a T50 or even a T100, and it seems attractive when I factor in the in-state tuition, no need to move, living expenses covered by my job, etc. But some nights the last thing I think of before going to bed is, What would I tell my future kids? Wouldn't I tell them to go for the best possible school, to position themselves for the best opportunities, to make the most of the gift of being born here instead of back in my lovely Third World country? The end of the spiel is always the same: Don't I owe it to myself (and to them) to be doing the same thing?


I LOVE everything you just said. That's exactly how I feel (aside from my selfish, vain longing to attend a prestigious school). Always, always, always shoot for the absolute highest thing possible. And if you don't get there, you at least won't have regret over not trying.

Meanwhile, my dad over here is going "My coworker has two daughters that went to Columbia and NYU. It would be nice to have a daughter that went to Harvard *strongly hints*"

Have to show you guys this. I got an email from Michigan state about scholarships (though it was UMich, so excitedly opened it). Decided to click on the link, just because. LOOK AT THEIR CRITERIA.

IKR, how can you say no to the preftige? I mean, it's HAH-VUHD. As long as you are doing it for you and not (just) your parents though.

Also to add to the stuff you liked, try saying this in your best Valley Girl accent: "I didn't move halfway around the world just to be mediocre. UGH." Mediocre = not T14


As much as it pains me, I could never go to Harvard.. I can't rationalize taking on all that debt even if I did get accepted.

Haha that last part though! When I told my dad my LSAT score, he said, "I came all the way to America just so you could miss points on the LSAT? Didn't you study?!" And then I hear my mom shouting at him in the background and he goes "I meant, your mother and I are very proud of you."

Dang. My last two PT scores have been incredibly low. Feeling like shit, given that it's so close to December. I really thought I'd be over the 165 plateau by now.
